Melisa will be a featured reader at the book release of Cindy Rinne’s “Listen to the Codex” at Skylight Books!

Sunday, July 23, 5:00 PM
1818 N Vermont Ave, Los Angeles, California 90027


Please join us for a spectacular evening of poetry reading and book signing to celebrate the launch of Cindy Rinne’s “Listen to the Codex,” the fifth release in the Native Blossoms Chapbook Series from Yak Press. “Listen to the Codex” is Cindy’s second chapbook, and her fourth poetry collection.

Guest readers include Native Blossoms series poets Nancy Carroll (“Night Walks”), and Melisa Malvin-Middleton (“Hover the Bones”). The reading will be moderated by Yak Press editor, Anne Yale.

As part of the Native Blossoms Chapbook Series, Cindy’s chapbook features a constraint poem “that takes the botanical name of a wildflower or other flora native to the poet’s locale as its title.” Cindy has chosen to write about Black Sage, which is featured prominently on the book’s cover.

Copies of “Listen to the Codex” will be on hand and available for purchase from Skylight Books at the event. Guests who purchase the book at the event will be entered to win some special “black sage” prize giveaways!

Or, if you prefer, you can pre-order a copy of the book (and get free shipping if you order by July 16, 2017) by visiting:
